    A C&R is for personal collecting only. You can not legally use your license for others. You can sell items that you bouht with your C&R as long as you log the disposition of them into your bound log, but you can not buy something with the intent of selling it. Saving your friend a few bucks is not worth the possible prison time.

    I really didn't know so that why I asked the ATF.
    I thought I might not have a right to but I seen this little quote from the ATF about the right to do a sell or transfer to a junior person.

    Quote: ATF

    A: The requirement that written notification concerning juvenile handgun possession be given by licensees to a nonlicensee to whom a handgun is delivered applies to curio or relic handguns transferred by licensed collectors. However, the sign posting requirement does not apply to licensed collectors. In the case of collectors, a requirement to post signs at the licensed premises would serve no purpose because the premises is not a business premises open to the public and licensed collectors may lawfully dispose of curio or relic handguns away from their licensed premises. [18 U. S. C. 922( x), 27 CFR 178.103]

    And I found this to

    Q: Can a C&R licensee give a firearm away as a gift?

    A: The Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA) allows for the purchase of firearms as gifts. If the particular firearm is from your collection, you must ensure that its disposition is properly recorded.

    This is where I got it

    This is were I thought I might could because your buying and transferring the firearm as a gift,So I thought it might almost be the same thing but he is buying it and I did the transfer.
    But like I said :ianal:
